AJ Wears :: A Leopard Skirt

Did you look up one day and wonder where the heck everyone on Instagram got a leopard silk skirt? Me too. I’m assuming it’s because this particular brand sent their ($200!) skirt to everyone to post about. The side of my brain that has seen The Devil Wears Prada 500 times knows it’s probably because some large brand showed them at Fashion Week, because now there’s a bias skirt in every shop you come across.

Don’t care either way, it’s an instant outfit, breezy for summer, and super cute. I picked mine up for $20 at Forever 21 because girl gets that it’s a fleeting trend and I’m not gonna spend hundreds on it.

Speaking of fleeting trends, I’ll address the sport sandals too. I don’t know why I’m so partial to them. They’re horrifying and weird, but I LOVE the funky casual look (doesn’t hurt that they’re super comfy too). I blame Prada and the fact that I slid into my mid-30s this summer. Next stop: Muumuu city.

AJ Wears :: A Denim Dress

What EXACTLY do you call this dress? Jumper? Pinafore? Fancy skirt overalls? Whatever term you may choose, I randomly remembered it the other day and decided to see if it fit (a lot of old stuff is doing that lately!). I had been dreaming up this sleeve / jumper combo in my head and was delighted when it actually worked.

It also made for the perfect pairing for my new shoes, a birthday gift I bought myself when I was in NYC. No one knows how to spoil me like me.

AJ Wears :: A Short Suit

It does not matter how much I plan, I cannot get my blog photos together for some reason. A few weeks ago, I planned a big blog photo day, only to realize I didn’t have the plate to connect my camera to my tripod. Another time, I couldn’t find the remote. And yesterday, I pulled out a fully exhausted battery, despite having taken no photos (my backup batteries must have been in another purse, of course).

The good news is, the iPhone XS takes some pretty dang good photos, I always have a little phone tripod in my car, and the Apple Watch lets you preview and take photos on your wrist! My entire life is a backup plan. So if you’re ever sitting there thinking, “Hmm, the quality of this blog seems to be suffering,” it’s definitely that, and not my eternal laziness.
